, they want this guy. they want tea party birther guy steve king. steve king polls way ahead of his next closest primary challenger. the more moderate republican congressman tom latham. steve king ahead by 17 points in that republican primary matchup when you look at the polls. of course, when you put steve king up against the likely winner of the democratic primary, and you actually poll the whole state, all likely midterm voters in iowa, steve king, the tea party birther king guy loses to democratic congressman bruce braley. but just counter factual here, let's say the wacky tea party guy, the birther steve king guy didn't run off with the primary, look what happens when you poll statewide among likely voters and ask them to choose between the not steve king guy and the democrat, actually, the republican guy wins. in other words, the whole state of iowa would rather have the more moderate republican guy. but if you do not give them that choice in the general election, if republicans decide that what they're offering is just the birther guy, just the wingnut tea party guy and a democrat
, but it seems they've already got their first target in mind. it's iowa congressman steve king. in the words of a top aide to mr. rove, quote, we're concerned about steve king's todd akin problem. all of the things he said are going to be hung around his neck. karen, aside from the fact that mr. king refers to undocumented immigrants as lazy dogs, suggested hillary clinton's state department has ties to the muslim brother 450dhood, and that he doesn't know where the president was born, might targeting mr. king actually help mr. king in some way? >> it could, although here is what i think it does broadly for the republican party. it does mean whoever the ultimate nominee, republican nominee in that race is, has to figure out a way to bring all those voters back together to get enough vote to then run against a democratic opponent who won't have been so ideally beaten up during a primary. remember, it was this sort of republican on republican violence during the primary that gave us, you know, vul titure capitalism that was used in the general election. >> it was also one of the finest clown s
that iowa republicans first choice for their open seat does remain congressman steve king. congressman steve king, seen here in this footage, demonstrating on the floor of the house how he thinks that immigrants should be electrocuted just like livestock. the announcement from karl rove's money machine a few days ago that they would try to stop candidates like steve king and paul broun from continuing to cost the republican party seats in the u.s. senate. the reaction to that announcement on the right was immediately and uniformly and vociferously hostile. how dare karl rove and his money guys try to do any such thing. and so yes, paul broun and steve king may be the prototypical examples of the kind of off the cooke end candidates that karl rove and the big money guys do not want in republican politics, because those are the kind of guys that lose senate seats that are otherwise winnable. but karl rove and his money guys kind of stand alone in that assessment. the rest of the party wants that. they want those guys. and they want it not naively. they know what they are getting. steve king an

the company to unlock his $137 billion on cash on hand to pay off dividends. steve sedgwick is live for us in london. steve, what exactly did david einhorn, who is he suing, what's going on here? >> basically, the point is apple wants to change its charter and ban a type of shares which would give a very high yield to investors. they want to preserve their cash pile, $137 billion, part of $500 billion plus held by the top 20 u.s. corporate. they want to hang on to the money, most of which is held offshore, which in brought back onshore into the united states could trigger hefty tax bills. apple wants to hang on to the money to use in other ways going forward. a lot of activist shareholders and hedge funds want a higher yield on their stock, especially considering the fact that stocks like apple are now trading as low as $468 a share. it's a very anxiety battle for the company and investors. >> steve, the merger talks, american airlines and us airways, where's it stand now? what's the implications for passengers? >> yeah, looks like this one's going ahead. it will create the largest domesti
with gop congressman steve pierce. he has decided to skip the state of the union. what's the reason? this guy. the lesser prairie chicken of new mexico. that's right. congressman pierce is going to the birds. literally. he tweeted that he's staying home in new mexico because "a public hearing on the chicken is the same day as the state of the union. no disrespect to the chicken, even if he is the lesser chicken. congressman, it's time for all of us to come together as a union. as americans. and showing up at the state of the union speech is one way to show it. we're facing some serious economic time. we're facing serious decisions on gun legislation. we're facing serious questions about how we sustain social security, medicaid and medicare. i know your party didn't do well last year, but, congressman, don't be chicken. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> war on drones, let's play "hardball." >> good evening, just a day before the president's chief counter terrorism advisor, john brennan heads to capital hill for his hearing to take over the c.i. ave
but the memory was taking notes on the blizzard of $78. steve? >> that's right. we just had ron talking about no one remembers the last time providence had, you know, more than a foot of snow. late '90s. talking more than two feet of snow in providence, rhode island. i think you have to go back to the blizzard of '78 and the eerie thing of the timing, 35 years ago this week. and this storm was truly epic. it was -- it was a northeast storm. go to atlantic city, new jersey, 20 inches of snow there. new york city shut down. but really, it was eastern massachusetts, rhode island, parts of connecticut. this thing was truly a monster. in massachusetts, you had up to four and a half feet of snow in some places. you had wind at 70 miles per hour in boston. 100 miles per hour in cape cod. you had 2,100 homes destroyed. 29 people in massachusetts that were killed by this thing. so obviously, it was a serious storm but it was also something if you're 40 or over and you're from new england, you're still talking about this and telling people about this and you remember this. under 40, you grew up hearing

, but that's not stopping state representative steve smith from pushing his new proposal to ban state agencies from sending out mailings in any language except english. he calls it a cost-cutting measure, but others say it's a violation of the civil rights act. one exception, voting materials can still be mailed out in other languages, though smith's own maricopa county doesn't have the best track record there. the spanish version of an election notice last year listed november 8 as election day. that's two days after the election really occurred. >>> finally, stephen colbert kind of, sort of avoids any conflict of interest issues while letting us know that his sister is running for congress in south carolina. and he offers advice to her potential opponents. >> as a broadcast journalist, i'm obligated to maintain pure objectivity. it doesn't matter that my sister is intelligent, hard working, compassionate, and dedicated to the people of south carolina. besides, i'm not sure i can support her because she is running as a democrat. i take that as a personal affront and, two, there are s
the likes of pat toomey, charlie crist and david dewhart. susan page and strategist steve mcmahon, welcome all, happy monday. ramesh i'll start with you. we know a lot of established republicans say you have to fight back in the primaries and get involved. this strikes me as something that will make things more divisive inside the republican party before it gets better. is that what the party needs? >> if you look at the reaction to this "new york times" story you get the distinct impressions a lot of republicans dislike each other more than the democrats and i think that's a a problem but the other question i have is how would this even looking backwards, how would this have made a difference in those races? if todd aiken is the example that was a three-way race, a tight three-way race, how would this group have picked one of the two candidates that would put him over the time. >> that anyone other than sharron angle would beat harry reid. there's a bunch of seats. >> and why do people think that the expenditure of a bunch of money is going to cause conservative voters in indiana to decid

expert michael lighter, steve clemons, editor at larnl for "the atlantic" and nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. first to you, michael. you are just back from saudi arabia. you are just off the plane. you worked with both with john brennan in both administrations, so with that out there, he is now answering questions for the first time. why from your perspective did the white house resist for so many months giving its legal rationale for the actions that it has taken m drone war. >> i think the administration did give some of its legal rationale and speeches by john and the department of defense general counsel, but not fully the way it has now. i think most of this was caught up in issues of internal executive deliberation. environment happy the white house has come out now. they now see what john's nomination -- they had to provide the actual office of legal counsel memorandum to the senate intel committee to move his nomination forward, and, frankly, i really do think that's a good thing. >> well, chris, you have been a student of these things. you've watched th
the names of these ceos who are going to be in today with the president. lloyd blankstein, steve case, marissa mayer. and we're not getting enough visas to highly skilled workers. >> this has been going on for years and years and years, that there's been a shortage of engineers, people with sci-tech backgrounds in the valleys. and this is only going to advance. because industry right now in america is becoming automated, you need a lot more phds, people with deep math backgrounds, and we don't churn enough of those people out in this country. that's a no brainer. but the union deal is very, very interesting. one of the more contentious parts of the debate is the lower end of the spectrum. what do you do about creating a path to legalize immigration for people who are coming in with lower skill sets. but it's impossible to find a serious piece of economic evidence that low-end immigration is overall bad for the economy. it's good. it's a net -- it's a net positive for the economy. all kinds of immigration. because those folks that are coming in. particularly if they're on a path to leg

care about. >> going back to steve's point and the reality of this, how do you convince democrats to both protect the programs that you are talking about and not worry so much about entitlement reform or sort of stick to their idea of entitlement without giving one or the other up? >> it's an important question and i am glad you asked that. one thing we have to think about is what we need to take care of. the fastest growing segment of the population right now. those who are 65 and older. when we are talking about that, i don't like to use the word entitlements. what we are talking about is our parents and grandparents going to be able to care for themselves after they stop working and will they have a health care they need? it's something we have to talk about and how we take care of the needs of our elderly as the fastest growing population. this is one of the things that suggested what we should do is slow down. we should take these measures that are requiring us to speed up and make fast decisions when we have time to figure out how to do it right and how to do it in a way to
, white house correspondent for the hill, amie parnes and steve. >> good morning. >> the growth in the u.s. economy turned negative for the first time. how is the president interpreting the latest economic numbers? >> the white house is basically saying that this report shows that the economy is still healing, something they have said. but they used the record to say, you know, they carbed that spending cuts -- that the greater spending cuts could -- could hurt the economy. that's where they are right now. we need to replace sequester, strike the right balance between spending and revenue and meanwhile republicans are kind of pointing the finger at them, saying you threw away the jobs council, where are the jobs? more finger pointing on both sides. >> let's switch gears and talk about former senator chuck hagel's confirmation hearing for second of defense. there were some pretty tense moments, let's take a listen. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy plunder in th ee vietnam. correct or incorrect. the question is were yo
committee. steve king and paul brown are howling in fur yi that big shots like rove are saying who should be the republican nominees and who shouldn't. today it was eric cantor's turn. he wants change. the super hawk of the party gave his manifesto at the city's nonprofit war room, the american enterprise institute. what he came out for, nom tu decree that colleges have to conduct employment surveys to say what jobs there are for history majors, english majors. i guess he wants to cut down on these people taking liberal subjects in college that allow you to think and express yourself. he sounds like he wants the federal government to have become a helicopter mom hovering over all of us. and they say democrats are intervening in people's live. what will republicans do next to try to defrekt from their history of starting unnecessary wars, chasing may norths and others from the polling places. helping me to explain the latest republican face lift are john feehery and dee dee myers. we'll start with this. we know karl rove plans on finding more electable republicans candidates as he finds th
republicans. in a new campaign pitch, iowa tea party favorite and senate wannebe steve king, friend, i'm under attack and i urgently need your help to fight back. karl rove and his army have launch aid crusade against me." the backlash on the right sent rove skamperring back for a tea party apology tour. >> what crossroads has been doing is spending a lot of money on behalf of tea party candidates. we've spent over $30 million on behalf of tea party senate candidates and over $25 million for tea party house candidates. >> but the intra-party purge seems far from over. one high profile republican strategist, who refused to be named in order to avoid inflaming the party he wants so silence, says there is a deliberate effort by party leaders to lib marginalize the cranks, haters, and bigots. there has to be a lot of cleaning out. >> can we ask you who that republican strategist was. it is notable he wants to remain anonymous. not just because he wants to be effective in the clearing of the underbrush, but also because look what happens when you suggest there are some crazies in the republican par
's got big, bad you in his sights. so the fight has begun. while steve king, matt kibbe, joe walsh, rush limbaugh, all the inhabitants of the cuckoo nest are scrambling because karl rove is drawing lines in the sand. want republicans to win? cut out the crazies? want the democrats, stop giving them easy targets, rape candidates and witches. stop making the democrats look smart and reasonable by running stupid and crazy candidates. the joy is, i have to say this, and it's really quite funny, each of the right wing factions thinks that they are the sane ones, they are the ones who have to protect the party from the others. well, tonight the duel to the death drives deeper. it's do or die, fight to the death. the winners get to run against hillary clinton. the losers get to say it's not their fault they lost. wait a minute. that doesn't make any sense. and neither does this fight on the right for the right to say you're right. with me tonight are two msnbc political analysts, joy reid of the grio and david corn from "mother jones." joy, it really is a joy to watch this, to watch rove runnin
strategist and former derry deputy campaign manager steve al man dorff and robert trayman. robert, after that bruising 2012 election season, is marco rubio the republican savior. >> well, i don't know if i would go that far, but he's certainly a rising star in the party. here is why. he's coming to the idea thoughtful with a lot of ideas. he's young. he comes from a very good swing state, the state of florida. he obviously is a son of immigrants. he's a minority and he's relevant in people's live. people look at him and say finally someone is thoughtful. finally someone is reasonable. finally someone looks like me in the republican party and also he has ideas. not necessarily i agree with all of his ideas but i'm willing to listen. i'd say he's relevant but i'm not sure he's the savior yet. >> when he was asked, steve, to weigh in on all this 2016 speculation, here is what he told "time." >> i have always viewed politics the following way, if you do a good job at the job you're going, you will have opportunities to do things in the future, maybe things you never envisioned. would democra

rove's opposition to steve king's iowa senate bid has been the best thing that ever happened to mr. king. are we witnessing the final days of the reign of king karl over the republican party? >> well, i think we may be. the fact that his super pac in the last election in 2012 had a 1.29% return on investment has not made donors very happy. >> oh, come on. he only spend $300 million. >> i know. it's chump change really. i don't know what they're so upset about. but the other thing here for the candidates for candidates like steve king, and really for any candidate, show me the piece of mail or the television advertisement that says i am the choice of the establishment, that's why you should back me. and essentially that is what karl rove's impractice mature at this point means. yeah, especially in the republican party, especially where there's this huge anti-establishment tea party wing, being the choice of the establishment, having that branded on you is not going to be a good thing. and the converse of that for steve king, if you are not the choice of the establishment, you can ra
're going to be ham strung. let's see what's on tap. tom hashingen is vacating his seat. steve king may end up being his replacement. steve king, who coined -- not coined, but uses, you know, with great impugnty the term anchor baby. saxby chambliss is leaving. john d. rockefeller leaving in west virginia. the leading goper is shelly -- murdock, again, we have this example time and time again the seat is offered up. the arch conservatives get their guy, and then maybe ashley judd or someone like her, some democrat from who, what, where, when, how comes in and ends up winning the seat. >> charlize theron is -- >> from south africa. >> oh, sorry. >> there needs to be a reconciliation here, right? as the party becomes more -- the battle lines are drawn with firmer and firmer markers, if you will, how do you build the tent big enough? >> if every republican who looks toward the center and we just have a crazy right, this is not good for our democracy. i mean, that's the bottom line with those constituents. >> iran, you're a betting woman, aren't you? >> could be. >> you could be for this moment
want to -- >> whoa. >> what just happened. >> steve, did you do that? >> momentum's been completely changed now. >> momentum! it's completely messed up now. >> i hope there are no lip readers because toure's about to lose it. >> i'm out of here. >> yeah. so there was the blackout which was obviously bizarre and i think gave rise to potentially some great harbaugh family practical jokes in the family like at the first family dinner since the super bowl, jack goes and cuts the power as a joke. love that. >> light the producers just did. >> exactly. great guys. thanks. but it also made me think of -- it was like a super bowl brought by stefan. it has everything. brothers. beyonce. blackouts. ray lewis. >> destiny's child. >> right? yes yes yes yes yes. it was so great and weird. but all in all interesting. something to watch i think every, you know, every quarter. >> something for everyone. >> something weird happened. >> there was, those are those memories and thought there was one other professional sports team with a blackout before. >> giants. >> no. it was the boston bruins and th
year or 2010. the first target could be in iowa where representative steve king is considering running for the congress in 2014 but the head of the conservative fund the conservative defeat project telling politico, another example of the republican establish's hostility toward its conservative base rather than listening to the grass roots and working to advance their principles, the establishment has chosen to declare war on the party's most loyal supporters and from red state, quote, i share any candidate who gets this group's support should be targeted for destruction by the conservative movement. joining me is editor mark murray. but the reality you and the first read team say this could and perhaps will get ugly here. >> well, it could get ugly. also railroad healthy. this is something that all parties go through after losing elections, particularly losing back to back presidential contests and crossroads, same organization trying to have a new outfit and outshoot saying it comes down to capable candidates versus incompetent ones and sometimes that capability is in the eye of the
, is about to begin. so the we're going right there now. >> steve richardson, who is the special agent in charge of the fbi's mobile division along with dale county sheriff wally olson as well as hugh mccall, we're going to give a briefing on the development that took place in this investigation and this will not be an opportunity for -- they will not entertain questions. we will have opportunities later for that. this is just a general briefing to discuss the development of what happened here today. so should be in five minutes. steve richardson, the spelling richards richardson. sure you all know wally olson o-l-s-o-n. hugh mccall, h-u-g-h, mccall m-c-c-a-l-l. thank you. >> so we're just hearing from -- what appears to be a public relations spokesperson explaining that in five minutes a press conference will be taking place. gabe gutierrez is our correspondent on the ground. gabe, go ahead. >> reporter: hi, martin. how are you? certainly a lot of excitement here as people await this news conference. i was able to confirm with local law enforcement that the child is alive and the susp
much for the great work that you guys are doing each and every day. and to steve israel who worked tirelessly to bring on 49 new outstanding members of this caucus, i am -- i am looking forward to spending time with all 49 of you, and hopefully we'll be seeing you over at the white house at various events, but obviously i know that you came here to get something done. i am looking forward to working with you every single day to make sure we're doing right by the people who sent us here. now, i actually just changed the format here. i called an audible. originally the way this was scheduled is i was just going to talk, and then i was going to shake some hands, and i thought since this is not a shy bunch, it might make sense for me to take some questions and some add vishgs i'm sure, you guys have for me. so what i'm going to do is make some points at the top, and then what i would like is maybe javier or steve or somebody can come up here and you can call on folks and we'll spend a little time with q and a before i get a chance to say hello to everybody. and part of the reason i wan
steve king is a potential candidate for the senate seat being vacated by the retiring tom harkin. crossroads president steven law says they're concerned about king's quote, todd aiken problem. what's your thought? is it going to get worse before it gets better here? will this move help in 2014? or is it 2016? >> i think there will be bruising changes that are going to go on within the republican party. with all due respect to john which i think spoke about pragmatism which i really do agree with, however, it's the philosophy of the overall republican party. while i may not agree with everything senator rubio did, he's actually saying wait, our government can help resolve this immigration problem. that's what i think will serve them better in the longer term, the philosophy really does align more with the moderate republicanism of president eisenhower, even frankly, president reagan. >> on immigration, the tea party is split on that issue right now. thank you so much. >>> we're learning more today about a disturbing story out of texas where a former navy s.e.a.l. hailed by combat

're not going to run. that means so far only two democrats, congressman ed marky and steve lynch have said they're going to make a bid for kerry's seat in the special election. >>> despite a grueling confirmation hearing, the chances of chuck hagel becoming secretary of defense are greater than 24 hours ago because john mccain and three other colleagues of his indicated they would oppose the use of a filibuster to try to block the nomination, rejecting an idea floated over the weekend by senate minority leader mitch mcconnell and others. move by mccain and others now suggest hagel is going to have enough support to be confirm. the nomination is expected to go to the full senate floor this thursday. >>> last night in the book touring supreme court justice sonia sotomayor made a rare television appearance. she was on the colbert report. she talked about her childhood in the bronx, faith in the constitution, but she got a little bit coy when stephen tried to draw her into specifics. >> not all of us believe in the constitution. the second amendment is never to be questioned. do you believe that we
's a guy who thinks president obama only opposed the soviet constitution. over in iowa, steve king isn't ruling out a run. he's currently pushing a bill to stop what he calls anchor babies. but what can i say about this next possible candidate for new jersey? >> there can be a new vitalization of the republican party concept where we extolled the vir which yous of the good business and fiscal policy. >> i'll be here every friday until such time as it's no longer legal. >> geraldo rivera leading the gop comeback? i don't think so. joining me now is e.j. e.j., thavnnks for coming on tonight. >> good to be with you, reverend. >> first, what do you make of scott brown's decision? >> i think it's a good decision for him. and i think democrats are very gleeful. if they dance jigs, i think harry reid is dancing one. he was the one candidate who could win that seat. he was running even or slightly ahead of markey. and while i think he was not as strong as he was going to be, he was when he first won. if the mood got a little bit bad on president obama, he could have won it again. he's smart to
